The treatment of acute lower limb ischemia and diabetes in an animal model using low-frequency pulsed magnet therapy (15 Hz, 1.2 mT) was the subject of a study by the Y. Pan (2013).
Lower limb ischemia is a major problem in patients with diabetes due to poor vessel formation (neovascularization).
Previous studies have already shown that low-frequency pulsed magnet therapy can promote blood vessel growth and repair in ischemic lesions.
However, this study addressed the question of whether pulsed magnetic fields would have similar therapeutic effects in cases of diabetes-related limb ischaemia.
The results showed that low-frequency pulsed magnetotherapy improves blood flow and new blood vessel formation in acute lower limb ischemia, mainly by the positive effect of pulsed electromagnetic field on fibroblast growth factor 2 (FGF-2).
Pulsed electromagnetic therapy can thus be invaluable in the treatment of diabetic patients with ischaemic limb involvement.
